Some images from the last few days:
Tuesday: Abalone Shells Christmas Tree in Poipu
Wednesday Morning early: The No Name Beach.
Very rough surf, but beautiful sun and waves. I saw a sign for hiking so I thought I'd follow the trail. Not really a trail just a walkway down to the beach.
Thursday: after second kick-ass yoga class, a hike to a view of Hanalei valley.
While the hike was pretty short - only 2 miles up, then 2 down, this was a very muddy, and therefore very slippery, and therefore not an easy hike. A walking stick was much needed. But it was worth it to get up high enough to see the entire valley. Those are taro fields below. Incredibly picturesque, like walking in a National Geographic magazine.
Today: (The day the world was supposed to end) A hike over Kuilau trail. This image is a little dark because it was about 2 seconds before the heavens opened up and poured on us - as it does every half hour or so around here - but you can see the trail across the little valley in all of the lush greenery.
Then I decided to go all the way to the end of the road - to the start of the Na Pali Coast. And I caught the sun set.
